Texas’s Under-Incarceration Problem

Tyler Lawyers Chapter

Texas is experiencing record levels of violent crime. This CLE will be a discussion of how this increase might have happened and what we can do to combat it, including an overview of Texas’s “catch-and-release” bond system, shifts in the makeup of the state and federal judiciary, the federal First Step Act, and other legal policy proposals.
